The President Accuses The Rich Of Controlling Water Supply And Financing Rappler Online News Site
RICH PEOPLE ACCUSED – In his speech last Saturday at Bukidnon, the president let out accusations saying rich people are faking water shortages and financing the online news website Rappler.
These speculations came after Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System and Manila Water initiated several water supply interruptions last month. The shortage affected an estimate of 1.2 million costumers.
The President, recently ordered the release of water from Angat Dam when Manila suffered from a limited water supply. Read more about it here.
This is according to a news article from GMA News. In his speech last Saturday, during a campaign rally, the President expressed his point of view in this statement:
“They didn’t have plans on re-opening the dam because they were waiting for a time to apply an increase. Then they will release the water. That’s true. These rich people, these sons of [cuss word] are milking us dry.”
He also said that the water supply was brought back after he threatened to fly to Manila to slap the people in control if they didn’t bring back the water by noon time. He specifically said:
“The water crisis, that son of a [cuss word]. If I haven’t told tell them, ‘Open the water dam. If there’s still no water supply by noon time tomorrow, I will go to Manila to slap all of you.’ The next day there was water. Would you look at that?”
Meanwhile, MWSS’ Admin Reynaldo Velasco promised to do their best together with Manila Water, Maynilad and, Bulacan Bulk Water to resolve the water supply in 150 days or at least 5 months.
Other than controlling the water shortages, the President also accuses the rich of financing the news site Rappler.
“They accept clients to attack. ACDC (attack and collect, defend and collect]) You attack to get paid. So don’t believe that they are clean, those sons of [cuss word]” The President said referring to Rappler.
That is all there is to it. We’ll post update as soon as we got them.
